This year's Nobel Prize festivities will look quite a bit different, thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. While we won't be seeing glittering royal jewels on display in Stockholm, the prizes will be awarded in a digital ceremony. And to remind us of the sparkle that will return to Sweden next December, I've got six dazzling posts on deck to help us reminisce about the best jewels worn for the celebrations over the past several decades. First up: ten of my favorite bejeweled Nobel appearances by Queen Silvia!
